Biography

The Rembrandts are best known for their song “I’ll Be There For You”, which was the main theme for the hit television show ‘Friends’. Their signature, almost Beatles-esque sound, coupled with ringing guitar and fresh harmonies, rocketed them to stardom in the , and their third album, ‘L.P.’, went platinum as a result. Though remembered primarily as a ‘’, the band had a fairly long history before ‘Friends’ made them a household name.

Lead vocalist Danny Wilde began his musical career as the lead singer of The Quick, an L.A.-based and inspired combo briefly popular in the late , breaking through with their song “Pretty Please Me”. The musical duo of Danny Wilde and Phil Solem had roots in an early / band, called Great Buildings, which released a single critically-lauded album on Columbia in 1981. Although spawning minor hits in “Hold On To Something” and “Maybe It’s You”, major success eluded the outfit.

After they disbanded, Wilde released a series of slick solo albums before rejoining with his former partner to form the Rembrandts. Initially, the band was heavily indebted to simplistic guitar pop reminiscent of early work from The Beatles and The Everly Brothers. They also took serious inspiration from pop contemporaries such asSqueeze and Crowded House.
